Hi, my name is Caleb Labarda. I’m the third
degree black belt, Tae Kwon Do. I’m here with Expert Village and today I’m going to be teaching
you how to do a five – forty. O.k. so another great way to practice, to start doing your
five – forty would be using a mat or something that’s soft and sturdy, that you can jump
off of. About right below knee level, o.k. I’m going to be using my mat right here, o.k.
it’s really good practice, it’s good! You can even have a partner on the other side,
holding out a pallet for you, you can be kicking it. So, from here you’re going to jump and
kick over, kick and that’s going to really give you the feeling of what a five – forty
looks like, o.k. So, practice from here, you’re going to put your knee up, jump over it, get
that kick, o.k. and land on the floor. O.k. now you are going to get a little bit higher
and it’s going to throw you off just a little bit, just cause you’re jumping off something,
so as you practice, you just want to slowly start using the mat less and less, putting
less weight on that foot, o.k. So, as you do it, you’re going to jump and using less
weight get over o.k. Now, you’re going to start throwing that kick out there, kick and
all the way over, o.k. And, that’s going to give you a great feeling of what your five
– forty looks like and what it’s going to feel like, o.k. And then after you get that,
start doing the spin, you’re going to step, spin, put your foot on the mat, jump and kick.
So, like this, jump and kick, o.k. That’s going to give you a good feel for the way
a five – forty is going to feel like.
